The number of treatment options within prosthodontics has expanded, thanks to the addition of technologies such as intraoral scanning and cone beam CT scans. But to achieve a fully digital approach to implant dentistry, workflow updates are needed in the clinical setting.

Dr. German Gallucci, head of the Division of Regenerative and Implant Sciences at Harvard School of Dental Medicine, will outline these considerations and the potential of digital dental technology during the 12th Annual Jesse T. Bullard Conference in Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry on April 16.

This event, which is free to TAMBCD students, residents, faculty, prosthodontic alumni, and program directors and residents at other dental schools, is open to specialists and general dentists alike.

Created by the Department of Restorative Sciences as a way to honor Dr. Jesse T. Bullard, the conference features internationally known experts in the specialty. A professor emeritus, Bullard established the first fixed prosthodontics residency program at the dental school and served as first chairman of restorative sciences during his 25 years on the faculty.
